From year to year, skin elasticity weakens. One of the body parts which women notice weakening first are the breasts. Breasts lose elasticity, the skin is relaxed and volume is lost, leading to a completely undesirable appearance. Unfortunately, it is an inevitable sign of aging. Youthful contours of your breasts can still be recovered through a breast lift at Alfa Medic General Hospital. For more information about a breast lift procedure, contact us for a free consultation.
Our doctors will respond to all of your questions, and will discuss the details of the operation in a comfortable environment, while maintaining strict confidentiality.
During the breast lift intervention, there is a possibility of adding implants, thereby creating fuller and bigger breasts.
The breast lift procedure
Breast lifting, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure of the breasts, which achieves aesthetically satisfying form of the breast, and / or reduces the size of the areola. Symmetry is achieved, and this procedure applies especially to women who are unhappy with the overall appearance of their breasts, which have relaxed due to pregnancy, lactation, genetics, aging, major weight loss or other factors. Although it is believed that sagging breasts occur in women with larger breasts, this is actually a result of the aging process for all women, regardless of breast size.
Breast Lift procedure at Alfa Medic General Hospital
Breast lifting is a procedure that is usually performed under general anesthesia, and the duration of the operation ranges from 1.5 to 3.5 hours. The exact lengths of the operation depends on the size and degree of relaxation of the breasts, as well as on whether or not a combined procedure is done for a breast lift and implant insertion at the same time.
Incisions are made in specific areas that are marked prior to the operation. Excess skin and tissue will be removed, and if necessary, the nipple and areola will be moved to a new position. For women with less sagging breasts, the doctor decides whether to perform other types of breast tightening interventions, known as “periareolar Mastopexy”, where he forms a circular incision around the dark skin surrounding the nipple (areola).
Recovery after breast tightening surgery
Recovery from breast lift surgery may be the last thing on your mind when making the decision on whether or not to have it done. However, instead of thinking about it later, it has to be as important as the choice of breast form, choice of surgeon, or method of intervention that will be performed. Finally, adequate rest and recovery will ensure the achievement of the desired results.
Your doctor may advise you to perform a gentle massage that helps with healing. The doctor will carefully monitor your recovery period, give you the necessary advice, appropriate therapy, and perform maintenance checks until you are both satisfied. Results after a mastopexy become clearly visible after a few months, until the definitive look is achieved after one year.
